Civil society organisations of Kangpokpi on Wednesday resolved to ban all activities related to the BJP in Kangpokpi district in connection with the K Orphanage incident on September 16.
The CSOs of Kangpokpi also informed the people of Kangpokpi not to invite or entertain any BJP MLA, Ministers, and party leaders as guests at any event or function.
The CSOs of Kangpokpi held a joint meeting at Kangpokpi district headquarters in connection with the sit-in-protest that was held on Tuesday at K Orphanage against the “unlawful activities” of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM)on September 16, sustaining bullet injuries to one Leikot villager whom they allegedly accused him of being drug peddler.
Speaking to the media, CSOs Kangpokpi Spokesperson Thangtinlen Haokip said considering the intensity of the “unlawful act” reportedly committed by the BJYM and the negligence of the BJP government in resolving the issue as demanded by the villages chief and area organisation, “we have decided to ban all activities of the BJP in Kangpokpi district till the issue is resolved.”
He also said that the people of Kangpokpi are also informed not to invite or entertain any BJP MLAs, ministers, and party leaders as guests for any function or event.
The CSOs spokesperson alleged that despite humble democratic protests and appeals to resolve the issue as per the customary law, the BJP government and the authorities concerned blatantly neglected to resolve the issue. Instead, the alleged drug peddler who was in police custody with his bullet injury was sent to judicial custody for 15 days, he added.
He further questioned as to how a person with a bullet injury was made to stay in a police station while in police custody, and the same person with such an injury was allowed to be sent to judicial custody. He further drew the attention of the human rights bodies to intervene into the matter.
The CSOs Kangpokpi also served a four-day ultimatum to the BJYM and the BJP to resolve the issue.
On failure to resolve the issue within the stipulated time, CSOs Kangpokpi will decide their course of action. The BJYM and the BJP will be solely held responsible for any untoward incidents, they stated.
